Premier League/Children in Need Youth Violence and Vulnerability Project
This project aims to reduce youth violence and anti-social activity by working with young people to change attitudes and behaviour.
The project aims to reach vulnerable and at risk young people in communities in north Staffordshire affected by ‘gang’ activity and associated negative behaviour.
Particular problems exist locally among young people regarding lack of positive opportunities and aspiration and this project will aim to address this.
Young people in this project will develop a greater awareness of the risks of carrying knives, the negative impact of anti-social behaviour and will develop a greater understanding the consequences of this behaviour.
- Young people have a greater understanding about the risks and consequences of gang lifestyles.
- Raise aspirations of young people involved in the project.
